One in 6 couples struggle with infertility, with those affected feeling sad, frustrated and worried nearly all of the time and 42% had experienced suicidal feelings. Understandably this is having a significant impact on the emotional wellbeing of people at work, and workplace productivity.

A study of 900 women going through IVF by the Fertility Network showed that:

  • 85% of women felt that treatment affected their day to day work.
  • 58% reported that work affected their treatment.
  • 59% felt their employer would benefit from education to help them understand the needs of someone having treatment.

“That was brilliant. The first half a dozen slides really struck a chord with me, and I particularly liked the focus on the men/non-baby carrying partners' wellbeing. Most IVF info I have accessed has brushed over the person not directly receiving the treatments and made me feel less valued, but I really loved the way that Sarah brought that message.”

“The session was really insightful and Sarah made me aware of things I haven’t considered before as potential triggers. I’ll be passing on the support techniques she taught me to anyone that makes me aware they are beginning their IVF journey”

“Sarah was amazing to work with and was incredibly supportive in creating a session to suit our needs from the very beginning. Her enthusiasm and knowledge of the subject made the session incredibly engaging, and she provided us with a plethora of resources and coping mechanisms that we can use to support our staff going forwards. She also made the particularly insightful for male/ the non-baby carrying partner, as she provided a lot of focus on how to support them more effectively which is often forgotten.”
